Lisa: When my kids were very young, we began to give them a water bottle for the day. We like that they have one whenever they like and stay hydrated. They have the goal of drinking 1-2 of these a day; more if they're very active. They also take their water bottle to bed with them. We tested many water bottles, and this is our favorite: Camelbak for Kids. It breaks apart easily for washing, and you can buy replacement parts on Amazon. When my kids were teething, they often used the mouth of these water bottles to gnaw on. I just replaced them when they wore out and considered it a partial teething toy.
I buy these at Bed Bath and Beyond with a coupon and I have several so I don't have to wash them daily. This one is a giveaway!
As it is with siblings, my kids like to have the same water bottle, so we got name tags made for them here and use them as needed.
Heather: We have tried so many water bottles over the years that I lost count long ago, and I don't even want to THINK of how much money we have spent!
We have tried every type of baby sippy cup, every type of kid water bottle, and very likely every type of adult water bottle.
We are very hard on our water bottles. They get used every single day, go everywhere with us and get dropped, kicked, thrown, etc. It has been my mission to find a water bottle that doesn't leak. At. All.
Several bottles that we tried were amazing at first but then slowly began leaking over time. I'm not kidding…we really abuse our water bottles.
The other major factor for me in finding the perfect water bottle is that it has to be easy to use. Easy to carry. Easy to clean.
We finally found it! It's the Contigo brand water bottle. It's great! It has an easy carry handle, is super easy to take apart and clean, and it even has a carabiner built into the handle so that you can attach it to a backpack, purse, etc. If all that wasn't enough, it also locks closed so that it doesn't leak!
To show you how much we love them, we are giving away a Contigo water bottle too! A water bottle for the little kids and a water bottle for the big kids!
